Jennifer Radakovic

Owner & Founding Principal

With a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Memphis, a Master of Architecture from the University of Virginia, and an unceasing passion for all things “home,” Jennifer brings dynamic thinking, fresh insight and a collaborative spirit to residential design projects.

There’s a profound intimacy in residential work that is absent in commercial design, and I’m drawn to that.

Jennifer's passion for architecture and design began at a young age. While her friends flipped through Seventeen Magazine, Jennifer poured over Architectural Digest. She cultivated this passion through an associate position with Watershed Architects, then as a partner at Terre Design Studio and Nested Design Studio.

She opened Jennifer Radakovic Design in 2017, focusing on renovations, additions and new homes. She leads the team at JRD with a goal of fostering creativity through collaboration.

Jennifer works with authenticity and compassion to fulfill her clients’ needs and aspirations. She creatively balances aesthetics, comfort, and functionality with a classic-meets-modern flair, knowing that well-designed spaces can positively impact the lives of others.


Dane Gedney

Interior Designer

Dane uses clean lines and forms to achieve beautiful, efficient spaces, placing high value in balance, proportion and consistency.

A Virginia native, Dane always enjoyed creating, building, and working with his hands. It’s no surprise that he found a creative outlet in graphic design. After earning his Bachelors degree from Radford University, he worked as a designer in the DC area. 

As Dane gained experience, his interests shifted toward interior design, wanting to create impactful designs in the physical space that would directly enhance lives. He earned a Masters in interior design from George Washington University. Before joining the team at Jennifer Radakovic Design, Dane worked independently with clients to create interior spaces they could take pride in.

How clients live their lives drives my creative process. I like to get to know them to understand what works and what doesn’t.

Living for years in Greece and Germany as a child instilled in Dane a love of travel, and he continues to seek out new adventures across Europe, South America and the US. Whether he's running, skiing, touring wineries or sunning on Lake Gaston, he finds design inspiration everywhere he goes.
